Freeman Vines Electric Blues


The sculptor and luthier Freeman Vines instruments are composed of found material and arranged to illuminate the spirit of each object. Among Vines’ most arresting works are a series of guitars carved from the wood of a hanging tree, wood that once bore an instrumental purpose in the reign of white racial violence.

How We Helped:
During Music Maker’s first visit with Freeman he was given an emergency grant to help with his diabetes medicine and food. Freeman is also on our sustenance program and receives a monthly check and was granted a Fender amp to test the sound of the guitars he makes.
